Far from Me ruined it! What a disgusting song. That whole Brent singing thing should've been cut earlier on.

Sweet Jane gets a "sex change" instead of "livin' on reds, vitamin C, and cocaine" in this version of Truckin'. Classic Bobby. Solid, if not exceptional, show with a powerful 2nd set. A historic location with notable heads in attendance. Also, some paper may have been circulating amongst the band before the show.

Well-captured bit of '82 lore. Ah, the good ol' Oregon Country Fair...

This show is certainly energetic - no questioning the band's decision, as they did often this year, to trade off precision for sheer firepower. Some lyrics aren't dialed in well, but it really doesn't matter a whole lot; that China Cat > Rider to end the first set is an absolutely *blistering* cumulation of everything they worked through in the first hour.

Second set goes into D>S fairly early on; even though Playin' has a nice jazzy ambience, the real heart of this show comes post-Space (about 45 minutes of music here to the end of the encore). Wheel > Other One > Truckin' is the goods and gives this show some real serious posterity - they begin to get tighter and tighter as it goes along.

So yeah, it ain't no 8/27/72, but a solid, decent, hyper-excited few hours of music here. Too bad they couldn't return in '92.

Robert Hunter on 'Day Job': "This song was dropped from the Grateful Dead repertoire at the request of fans. Seriously."

Hey, I hear you, brother - it *is* a good song. But remember - you're not going to sell that one in front of a crowd that looks the way the OCF crowd does. If you've been to the fair, you know what I mean...

Love this show, the sound is great and jerry's voice on west la fadeaway is probably the best I've ever heard. Usually I only listen to 89 90 versions of wlafadeaway because that's when Jerry's voice was at its strongest in the post mid 80s years. So it was awesome when I found out about the early 80s versions that which obviously had even stronger Jerry vocals.

Another great job by the band, Paul, Joani and Charlie. Nice soundboard captures all the fun of that festive day!!!
